AWESOME! pen source karaoke singing game UltraStar Deluxe, inspired by Sony SingStar™ (includes step by step guide to get it working)
tldr guide to get it working: ## Step 1: building you need to build the project (no packages for instance for fedora), but it is easy since build requirements are up to date. However, i had to use the current master version, since the stable release from 2020 wants a version of ffmpeg which is too old for my fedora. received some odd warnings, but the game still works ``` Linking ../game/ultrastardx Warning: "crtbegin.o" not found, this will probably cause a linking failure Warning: "crtend.o" not found, this will probably cause a linking failure 216888 lines compiled, 10.6 sec 59 warning(s) issued 616 note(s) issued make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/username/src/USDX/src' ``` ## Step 2: starting creative commons songs For legal reasons, it doesn't contain for instance copyrighted music and similar. some creative common songs which you can use without much configuration: https://github.com/UltraStar-Deluxe/songs This is great to understand how real examples work and makes step 3 (the interesting part) easier. You need to git clone this repository and then start the game with the path to this repo. ``` $ cd ~/src/USDX/game ~/src/USDX/game $ ./ultrastardx -Songpath ~/songs ``` ## Step 3: starting with copyrighted music Basically, ultrastar just loads whatever music file you dropped in the songs folder. So this way, you can also decide if you want to sing based on an instrumential version or if you want to sing along the original song, with the original singer assisting you. For the text and the notes how high you need to sing, i found this repository which contains both for many popular songs: https://github.com/razzertronic/usdx-songs but it doesn't work yet, the music file is still missing. Look into the creative commons repository and see which folder structure of the songs are expected (cover, text file and music file is important). The music file is also referenced in the song.txt file. This file looks for instance like that. `audio.ogg` must exist. MP3 is just the tag name, so the format doesn't matter. the creative commons repositiory also uses some OGG files. ``` #TITLE:Alle nur geklaut #ARTIST:Die Prinzen #MP3:audio.ogg #BPM:159,75 #GAP:12480 : 0 2 64 Ich ``` Also, i found that the music file i downloaded from youtube and the song.txt don't fit perfectly together, the youtube song lags a few seconds behind. TO fix that, i needed to change the GAP value in the song.txt Another example is: in one Madonna song, i found that one break (short period of silence) was inconsistent to the song.txt. Anyway, i guess you need to be prepared to spend some time to get each song working. Didn't try it yet, but maybe https://github.com/UltraStar-Deluxe/UltraStar-Creator can help with that. However, the software itself, and the overall result is **awesome** and very much on the same level as singstar!

> [...] This is important, because they kind of fudge the numbers a bit. NIF measures power in as the laser power into the fusion reaction chamber, not what they SUPPLY to the laser. If they claim a Q of 1 based on their measure; it would actually be a Q of 0.01 by the standard calculation, because they're ignoring the inefficiencies of the lasers. > > Not only that, but we'd still be a factor of 20 from viable power. This is just something to keep in mind.

yes, my deleted question was just missunderstanding your question and asking for clarification, but after thinking about it i understood it better










can you comment or post something to the feminism community? then i can appoint you



hmm, i don’t have much experience about cross instance moderation work, but i trust the experience of @NormieGirl@lemmy.perthchat.org

–> so yes, i would be very happy to welcome you in the moderation team!



because i don’t have a better sublemmy with equally high user subscriptions


but then the problem is that for instance women are excluded from such movement (probably?) -> and i think the criticism of women in such movements is very important.

so yes i agree that leftist men need to do some work in that area, but i think it is better when noone is excluded from that.

For instance, as @Grograman@sopuli.xyz said:

A lot of issues that men face are directly because of the patriarchy so dismantling it is the only way to fight for men’s rights. Not being taken seriously in sexual assaults, not being equally considered for custody, not being able to express emotions - all of these come from the bullshit patriarchal view of strong men and weak women that the patriarchy enforces. It’s all the same fight.

I think this is important to understand for all people, not only for men. and i think the quality of understanding is higher when all views are included, from all genders.


at the same time:

i recommend to read JJ Bola’s book “Mask Off : Masculinity Redefined”.

Probably a good short version is “Why toxic masculinity hurts men: JJ Bola explains all” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekPg-ZGqvb8

i think this is a good starting point in dismantling patriarchy. But still, dismantling patriarchy is very important.


As a male leftist, i’m critical about that - i think the biggest danger of such a group is that they would not be able to dismantle patriarchy and male supremacy behavior. So the danger would be: if queerfeminist activists criticize this mens group because of patriarchy, their response is “yes, thanks for the critique, we fix that” - but everything stays the same because those men care more about the feminist label and the reputation and the feeling of being feminist than the actual dismantling of male supremacy and patriarchy in leftist groups.

For instance: currently, leftwing groups also have sometimes sexual violence towards women or queer people. From experience (as a male leftist), what happens in many cases is that - especially men - have a bad/superficial understanding of patriarchy and therefore do not stand in solidarity to victims of sexual violence. Patriarchy means that it is quite likely some male friends either have been abusive in the past - or will be abusive in the future. This is a consequence from our society not explaining how good sexual consensus work, how manipulative some behavior can be, etc.

So in short: it is quite likely that those men would not held their friends accountable and talk about how patriarchy works etc, and NOT make sure that something like that (patriarchal behavior) doesn’t happen again.

tldr: as a male leftist working in this area, i am not sure if this group would be able to gain the necessary knowledge about patriarchy, sexual violence, abusive behavior, and other aspects of “toxic” masculinity.


oh hello, didn’t expect you to find you here, welcome!

thanks for the links and further explanation :)


@dessalines@lemmy.ml @nutomic@lemmy.ml

response to the linked github ticket:

instead of limiting the posts, i think the easiest way would be to just adapt the lemmy ranking algorithm https://join-lemmy.org/docs/en/about/ranking.html to include the amount of posts per user and per community. So that it is also logratithmic.

this is what i mean with the above post, that the more a user posts, slowly the ranking decreases for each post. Also for the community.

this is a better solution


i think it makes also sense for the ones you subscribe to. for instance, i have usually like 5 posts from lemmygrad in my feed because they have both many posts and many upvotes - which means high liklihood that their post lands in a high position in the feed.

compare that to instances which are for instance very new and get not many posts and not many upvotes, or only not many upvotes. --> i don’t see them much on my timeline

–> so i think applying that on all communities increases diversity overall, in the lemmyverse


disagree. i found this issue many times in instances which whose activity was perfectly fine otherwise, and for instance even when the default filter would be active, this STILL would be an issue since every post is shown as equally active




and queerfeminist theory is not synonymous with being liberal, as for instance also (radical) communist/marxist/anarchist variants of that exist.

I agree that materialist analysis is necessary, but some parts of non-liberal/radical queerfeminism contain materialist analysis?

Proletarian feminism is the way to go, and queer liberation can not come through ‘queerfeminism’ but instead through a workers’ revolution with the right programme.

I disagree that workers revolution leads necessarily to queer liberation. For that to happen you need to include analyse for instance power structures and similar stuff. And this is part of the radical variants. So for instance: worker revolution can also lead to a society in which male workers decide everything and have much power.
